Stuck Moen cartridge


The cartridge is round. Grab the stem with pliers and turn the cartridge a quarter or half turn. It will break it loose and it will lift right out. Put a thin coat of plumbers waterproof grease on the new cartridge before installing.

Stuck Moen cartridge


Thanks, I got one out! (Did I update this to say I discovered I had two Moen faucets dripping?) Next I'll do the kitchen faucet. Then that drippy Delta in the other bathroom....

Stuck Moen cartridge


Got it! Thanks for the help. I just didn't want to force something out until I was sure there wasn't something I was missing. They were both stuck in there real good!

And as an aside, I used this opportunity to take apart all the handles and really clean out the gunk....whoa... And I bought these fixtures new 5 years ago. I'm glad I took apart the sprayer hose too!
